The two rear doors seems to be a child safety lock issue. Check on the door jams and see if there is a switch, or check your manual if you have one. The gas tank door should also have a switch in the car, or a cable beside the seat or somewhere. I'm not that familiar with BMW, so i am just trying to do some helpful guessing.

I need to open the gas tank from inside the car i do not where


There will not be an opening for the fuel tank inside the car. This would be an enormous safety risk as you would have volatile fumes in side a confined space. May be you are wanting to open the filler door in the side of the car from inside the car which is a vastly different question

Dont work rear door locks


Your Tempo is equipped with early child-proof rear door locks...(cannot open from the inside when locked) Open the doors from the outside and look near the door catch for a small switch that moves back and forth...if still labeled it should show "Lock...Unlock" marks...leave on unlock for normal opening from inside. Hope this helps.

X-Type Jag 2002 off side rear passenger door will not unlock. Cant open from inside or out.


Your rear door lock lever rod seems to have come off and is therefore not releasing the lock. You will have to open the inner door opener lever and try to somehow reach the place from where our lever rod has come off, manually release it, open the door, its inner door panel and put the rod back in its proper place.

I can't open door of gas tank, when all doors are unlocked, audi A4 2009. is there other way to open that manually?


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. Try going through the trunk. There might be a cord or an access port that you may be able to find to get through. It should be on the same side as the gas tank port/gas cap. If your manual gas tank opener is not working, you might be able to get a hold of the cable and pull it. There is a cable that opens it.

Unable to open gas tank on 2009 volkswagen tiguan


VW lock the gas tank with central locking
possibly the actuator stuck or dead
or the door not unlocked
try locking and unlocking all doors several times
and observe if all doors are responding
If all doors are locking and unlock the gas tank should also unlock
If not most likely the actuator or solenoid is bad
at 2009 this should be a warranty issue so let VW pay for it before you try it.

Hope this helps, it it does please leave feedback Thank You and Good Luck

Well you have a few issues here. As for the drivers door not locking/unlocking the vehicle, it sounds like the linkage that comes off the back of the tumbler has broken off. You can tell if this has happened because of the locks and also you won't feel any resistance when you turn the key in the door. For the gas flap lock either there is a leak in the vacuum system for the locks or the gas flap lock is bad. To manually open the gas flap lock you need to go through the trunk and behind the trunk panel where the gas flap lock is there should be a lever to manually unlock it or you can remove the screws that hold in the lock.

If it´s the passenger side where the gas tank fill is, there is a automatic safety device that locks the sliding door, that prevents to open the door while filling gas, be sure that the folding cover of the gas tank is fully closed and nothing is jammed inside

AUdi A6 gas tank button


There is no button to open the gas door from the inside of the car.  As long as the doors are unlocked, you should be able to push in the far right side of the gas door and the left side will pop open. I too spent hours looking for this non existent button..I went as far as to going back to the car dealership.

Hold both buttons the Open and the Lock on your remote key for about 60 seconds, it should turn the lights inside the car and the problem should be fixed.
